We are thrilled to announce the release of a new documentary, Burkinabè Bounty: Agroecology in Burkina Faso!
Showcasing activist farmers, students, artists, and leaders in the local Slow Food movement, the documentary looks at how the Burkinabè people are reclaiming their land and defending their traditions against the encroachment of corporate agriculture. Check out the trailer for Burkinabè Bounty, learn about the artists in the film, and find upcoming screenings here!
If you would be interested in bringing Burkinabè Bounty to your town, drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Burkinabè Bounty is our second film about activism in Burkina Faso. Previously, we released a full-length film about creative nonviolent resistance in the country, Burkinabè Rising.
The idea for Burkinabè Bounty came from our collaborations with ally Slow Food International. Slow Food works to prevent the disappearance of local food traditions around the globe. We’re excited that we’ve been able to screen the film to packed audiences at Slow Food’s 12th Terra Madre Festival in Turin, Italy as well as for members of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome.
